Hear what doctors, scientists, and public health experts say about wireless radiation and the urgent need to protect children.
“As a research scientist and physician who studies how microwave radiation affects the outcomes of pregnancy, I am deeply concerned about growing exposures to cell phone and other wireless radiation.”
Hugh Taylor, MD, PhD
Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital
Dr. Taylor’s animal research on cell phone radiation found damage to memory. Watch a presentation of his research.
“The majority of animal and cell studies have found nonionizing RFR can induce oxidative stress- a key characteristic of human carcinogens and a way that RFR can initiate or promote tumor development as well as play a role in the development of other diseases. Recent experimental and epidemiological studies indicate that RFR also induces cancers of the thyroid and breast. DNA damage and cancer in these state of the art studies signal the need for the public to reduce exposures to RFR now.”
Linda S. Birnbaum, PhD
Former Director, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and National Toxicology Program Scholar in Residence, Duke University, Former President, Society of Toxicology, Adjunct Professor, Yale University and UNC, Chapel Hill, Visiting Professor, Queensland University
Read her letter published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute here.
“Given the human, animal and experimental evidence, I assert that, to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, the probability that RF exposure causes gliomas and neuromas is high.”
Christopher Portier PhD
Former Director of the United States National Center for Environmental Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and former Director of the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
Portier’s 176-page expert report with 443 references on cell phone radiofrequency radiation and cancer.
“We should not wait. The science is now clear and compelling, indicating that wireless technology is harmful to health, especially for children. Wireless radiation is repeating the history of lead, tobacco and DDT.”
Devra Davis PhD, MPH
President of Environmental Health Trust, founding director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the U.S. National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences, and a member of the team of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists who were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize with the Honorable Al Gore.
“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic can no longer be ignored. If the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer were to meet to review all of the evidence, we believe the weight of evidence supports a new determination- that wireless radiofrequency radiation is a human carcinogen.”
Anthony B. Miller, MD
Professor Emeritus at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health of the University of Toronto. He has served as Senior Epidemiologist for the International Agency for Research on Cancer and was Director of the Epidemiology Unit of the National Cancer Institute of Canada, Chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics at the University of Toronto and Consultant to the Division of Cancer Prevention of the U.S. National Cancer Institute.
Read “Cancer epidemiology update, following the 2011 IARC evaluation of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields” published in Environmental Research.
“I am calling on my industry to bring safer technology to market. The current implementation of technology is not safe. Take a good look at the science. This is about our children’s future. Do not be lulled into believing that 25-year-old standards can protect the youngest and most vulnerable. They simply cannot.”
Former President of Microsoft Canada and now CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology
“I am a former member of the New Hampshire Commission that was tasked with exploring the health and environmental impacts of wireless radiation. The Commission was created by a bill that was passed by both houses of the legislature and signed by the governor. Our findings were clear that wireless radiation presents a threat to health, particularly to children’s health.”
Kent A. Chamberlin, PhD
Past-Chair and Professor Emeritus, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of New Hampshire
New Hampshire Commission Report on 5G Health and Environment
“The science is clear. There are definite biological effects at intensities far, far lower than those allowed by the current FCC regulations. Non-ionizing radiation has biological effects even at low non heating levels. U.S. government safety limits are completely irrelevant to the modern cell phone age.”
Paul Ben Ishai, PhD
Professor of Physics at Ariel University, Israel
His work focuses on dielectric physics and Terahertz science and he has published over 50 articles including several papers on 5G frequencies and the skin.
“The exposure levels of the Federal Communications Commission are totally outdated and do not protect the health of the public, especially of children. I urge you to take strong and active steps to reduce exposure of children and staff to excessive levels of radio-frequency EMFs within your schools.”
Dr. David O. Carpenter, M.D.
Director, Institute for Health and the Environment University at Albany, a Collaborating Centre of the World Health Organization, and former Dean of the School of Public Health at the University at Albany. He served as the Executive Secretary of the New York State Powerlines Project in the 80’s, is Co-editor of the Bioinitiative Report and has testified on EMF issues to both houses of Congress and also to the President’s Cancer Panel. He has over 400 peer-reviewed publications on various aspects of human health and environmental exposures.
Letter from Dr. Carpenter to Petaluma California Public Schools
“As a neurosurgeon practicing for 36 years, I strongly recommend everyone reduce their cell phone, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi radiation exposure. Numerous independent scientific studies have found not only brain cancer, but also memory and reproductive damage.”
Dr. Hillel Z. Baldwin, MD
recently retired from clinical practice in neurosurgery in Tucson, AZ at the Carondelet Neurological Institute with an emphasis on complex and minimally invasive spine procedures in addition to Skull base, pituitary and brain tumor surgery. During his career, Dr. Baldwin has served as Chief of Neurosurgery at Tucson Medical Center, Northwest Medical Center and El Dorado Hospital in Tucson. Baldwin also served as president of the Arizona Neurosurgical Society.
“Children deserve safe technology. This is the time to get involved because our thoughtful efforts mitigating risks today will go far to protect our children’s healthy future. “
